With a full-length carbon plate and light, bouncy foam, it is HOKA’S answer to Nike Next% or Saucony’s Endorphin. Furthermore, HOKA have made some key upgrades from their original Carbon X.

Like Kurt Fearnley before him, Jaryd Clifford is on his way to becoming a household name.

The name Jye Edwards has been circling around the Australian middle distance scene for years now. A talented junior, destined perhaps for greatest, but held back by those all to common injuries.  But now, under the close eye of one of Australia's most successful coaches in history, Dick Telford, Jye Edward's stock is on the rise. A no BS type of runner, modest, polite,  loaded with both endurance and speed; it's hard not to want this guy to succeed. We caught up with Jye and had a pretty cool chat.... RT: Jye, good to have you on RT. Congrats with your Albie Thomas Mile victory (Ed. Jye clocked 3:57.30).  You must be stoked with that? JE: Hey mate, it’s a pleasure to be here! Thanks a lot, I was very happy to be able to nab the win at the Albie Thomas Mile against such a quality field. It’s not often you get to toe the line with an NCAA champion and a 3-time Olympian in the same race, as well as several other top athletes. A great end to the year and hopefully a good springboard into more races in the New Year.
